NCHR and our partner, the Geneva Academy (GA), will hold the eleventh Training Workshop on UN Human Rights Mechanisms on 24-28 June in Geneva, Switzerland. This workshop is for participants from selected Asian countries only and will include regional perspectives.

Held on 24-28 June 2024 in Geneva, this special training is only open to Asian applicants. 

This is an opportunity to develop a unique, practitioner’s insight into the functioning of UN human rights institutions based in Geneva, through a mixture of lectures and attendance at live Human Rights Council sessions.

The ultimate aim of the workshop is to increase the participants’ capacity in contributing to constructive involvement with human rights discourse through teaching-learning activities, academic research, and other forms of engagement. There will be a rich selection of speakers with high levels of expertise on their respective topics.
